Seriously

Don’t ask us how we found this out, but… A porn website has sponsored a mountain bike team for 2016.

xHamster.com announced in a blog today that it will be supporting the Italian Promosport Racing team for 2016.

The Italian team was formed three years ago and has both downhill and cross country racers. It has mainly competed in domestic competitions such as Italian Cup and Italian Championships.

xHamster says: “We tend to believe that cycling, as xHamster, is all about passion, commitment and a great deal of teamwork. It`s about accepting the challenges and exceeding the limits, while working in a team of professionals whom you can undoubtedly trust. That`s the reason why we stand behind the sponsorship of Promosport Racing team”

Federico Silvi, Promosport Racing team`s Vice President said, “It takes a viable brand for a viable team, and we couldn`t expect a better adding for season 2016! We are incredibly excited to have xHamster among our main sponsors”

The team will be taking on the motto: “just bikes no bullshit” that mirrors xHamsters slogan “just porn, no bullshit”.

We’ll keep an eye on how the partnership develops throughout the team’s season but we’re sure that wherever they ride they’ll be a hard act to follow.

    I have to say after Sockgate and then the 661 picture cock up, this has to go down as the worst move in history. Yes yes we want cycling to be an equal sport etc. but before that just show us your t1ts love, ooh nice. Now off to the start gate with your sexy arse now.

    I mean come on people!

    Are you f*cking kidding me?!? You’re linking to a porn site after a totally unbiased report? You should be biased – the more people riding the better right? Women’s mtb is the fastest growing area of the sport. And you link to a porn site. After an unbiased report.

    Do you think that all the women on that site chose a career in porn? Or possibly been coerced in to it? Coerced for example through poverty, or trafficked… Still – it doesn’t matter, they’ll be paid pretty well so they can afford a downhill or cross country race bike…

    You’re supposed to be journalists.
